Father Frags Best
The war against the vicious Strogg was a tremendous victory for all of humankind. Despite the loss of thousands of brave soldiers — more due to bad planning than the commanders want to admit — a brave few were able to penetrate the Strogg defenses and bring about complete annihilation. That’s all well and good…
But what happens when those same shell-shocked soldiers return to “normal life” back on Earth? How does one get back to “family values” after spending so much time as a killing machine… and a damn good one at that! Will his kids make a smooth adjustment to having a father around who is semi-delusional? Is there something evil lurking in the basement, waiting for someone to check the boiler? Is Little Joey, by some freak genetic accident, his own dad? Do gibs cooked in lava really have higher fat content than, say, broiled gibs?
Most of these questions will, admittedly, NOT be answered in this movie.
But, this is the story of one such veteran, and his loving family.
Ok, maybe “loving” is a bit too strong of a word…
